Welcome to the PyPSA Community!
PyPSA stands for Python for Power System Analysis.
The aim of this project is to provide an open-source python environment for state-of-the-art energy
Here you find links to projects and research related to the PyPSA environment.
Our vision is to provide a free, user-friendly and performant model environment to support a smooth energy transition around the world. The packages enable to go all the way from calculating renewable energy potentials to creating complex electricity networks and cost-optimizing the pathway of a whole energy system. All packages are build in a modular sense so that they may be used independently from each other but interact easily.
This project is maintained and coordinated by the Department of Digital Transformation in Energy Systems at the Technical University of Berlin. Previously, it was developed by the Energy System Modelling group at the Institute for and Applied Informatics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology funded by the Helmholtz Association, and by the Renewable Energy Group at FIAS to carry out simulations for the CoNDyNet project, financed by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the Stromnetze Research Initiative.
We are very happy about and constructive feedback and contributions to the Git-repositories!
Numerous research publications are build on the PyPSA environment. Here we highlight some of them. For an extended list, have a look at the up-to-date Google Scholar query.
